mRobo will automatically convert the music sound into dance by transforming, growing a head, legs and arms. Whether you play rocks, pop, or reggae, mRobo will respond with corresponding moves. Don’t worry, it comes equipped with a unique software to analyze music for beats and rhythms. It’s a fun way in enjoying music.  To quote some new ads-- "Your kids will love it too. When the music stops, it will transform back into its origin shape, a compact speaker."

Weighing at about 3.3 pounds, the travel-friendly mRobo measures only 4.3 inches (W) x 6.3 inches (L) x 7.9 inches (H).
